SFPD Nabs Three After Armed Robbery At Recycling Center

Three people were arrested after an armed robbery at a San Francisco recycling facility early Sunday morning, police said.

The robbery was reported at 7:39 a.m. at Replanet Recycling, located at 195 Bayshore Blvd.

Police said two men entered the business and told the two employees who were working at the time to open the cash register and the safe.

Tom Hicks, a supervisor at the recycling center, said the suspects threatened to kill his employees if they didn’t cooperate.

The employees, men ages 25 and 46, complied and the suspects took cash and fled in a gray sedan with a female accomplice, police said.

The suspects have since been arrested. Their names have not been released, but police said they are two men in their 50s and a 46-year-old woman.

Hicks said the business had just opened for the day at the time the robbery happened.
